Headshot of Stavros Gourgiotis

My current role

I am a consultant surgeon and an enthusiastic scholar researcher with more than 17 years of experience working in clinical and university settings.

I have a deep and varied experience of clinical and surgical work as a physician, as well as a tutor and researcher in areas related to general and emergency surgery, trauma and critical care. 

I have a broad training in general, including laparoscopic, emergency surgery and trauma and I have been working in emergency departments as a consultant surgeon and head of department for many years.

My experience in intensive care medicine allows me to feel confident in the treatment of critically ill patients. Furthermore, I have a special interest in day surgery and in ambulatory surgical care.

In parallel with my clinical work, I have initiated numerous research projects and collaborated extensively with international and public sector organisations. I am committed to maintaining a high output of publications, especially in high-profile academic journals. I have attended many conferences with oral, poster presentations, lectures and workshops as a faculty member.
